Carole McClellan: “I Wanted To Design Rock ‘n’ Roll Clothing!"Written by Yuliya Suleymanova
Interview by Yuliya Suleymanova. Seattle, WA – Sun Valley ID.
I have been planning an interview with Carole McClellan, an American designer noted for using leather and repurposed fur for quite a while. I was trying to remember how long we’ve known each other. I believe it has been 15 years. Time flies! I have experienced the luxury of having Carole design several unique pieces.
Carole has been an incredible mentor for me. I would always seek advice from Carole on either producing a fashion show, consulting on the teaching material for my fashion marketing and branding courses, working with local fashion designers, or asking her to share fashion industry knowledge and expertise on the fashion discussion panel at the Fashion Group International, Seattle Chapter.

Weaponized Misery by Oceans on Orion, ft. Ran Yerushalmi - New Single ReleaseWritten by Editorial
Tel Aviv, May 20th 2022 - Oceans On Orion reveals their third single Weaponized Misery featuring a special guest - Ran Yerushalmi, a frontman of the Walkways band, taken from OOO’s upcoming album to be released soon via LMH Records. The new single offers powerful duo extending the band’s musical range and vocal styles fueled by shredding guitars of Sergei Metalheart and Amit Fortus and driven by heavy rhythm section charged by bassist / vocalist Guy Schwartz and drummer Aviram Zeevy.
The duo is unpacking the polarizing tension of living through constant conflict. In a misshapen mirror image of the political dynamics of the day, the two singers square off to the thunderous beat of the song's heavy rhythm section. They exchange accusations and denounce the others' narrative. In the end, there is no resolution, only the unified march, and suffering of those condemned to live under these circumstances.
